of certain key gene fragments.

Thalassemia minor is a less serious form of the disorder.

There are two main forms of thalassemia that are more serious.

In alpha thalassemia, at least one of the alpha globin genes has

a mutation or abnormality. In beta thalassemia, the beta globin

genes are affected.

Each of these forms of thalassemia has different sub-types.

The exact form you have will affect the severity of your symptoms and your outlook.
